Ascent Trip Report

The following ascent was completed by "Highpoint Hitz and "Tessa Trailmap".

This was actually the second time that I was at this high point. In my first attempt, I was unable to find the cairn that is mentioned in other reports. I still did not find the cairn, but I walked around enough within the highest contour to be confident that I was at the highest point. At least I found a geocache in a green, metal box. I signed the register and noticed Ben Lostracco's entry. He has a profile on, and has very good directions to get to this high point.

In addition to finding the high point, we thoroughly enjoyed the lookout and the plane memorial.
